About us

The California Alliance is an independent network of community-based organizations based in neighborhoods all over the state. We are committed to revitalizing the California Dream by reforming outdated tax laws and bad budget policies.

We believe it's up to us – everyday people – to make our state great again. Two years ago, 5 million more of us voted than in previous years because we had hope in something different. We saw the extraordinary power of ordinary people standing up together.

Harnessing some of that energy is exactly what is needed to reignite California's golden promise. If even a fraction of us work together to change outmoded state policies, and if all of us vow just to vote regularly, we can jump-start the engine of shared prosperity once again. By restoring common-sense democracy to our state government and making corporations pay their fair share we can make the California Dream a reality.

Our principles:
1. Securing sufficient and stable funding for our schools, roads, and first-responders.
2. Making our government more effective to better meet the needs of our communities.
3. Shaping a fair tax system where people pay based on what they can afford
4. Encouraging economic growth to create good paying jobs and a high-quality of life for all Californians

Currently comprised of 12 anchor organizations representing 27 groups working in 10 counties, Alliance groups represent a broad range of people, including poor and working families, African-American, Latino, Asian and Pacific Islander communities, immigrants, women, youth, seniors and low-income workers. Membership organizations employ many strategies to pursue their work: grassroots community organizing, leadership development, public policy research and advocacy, and civic engagement campaigns.

In less than one year, the Alliance has connected with 270,000 voters and has identified 170,000 people open to changing California's outdated tax structure.
